According to a press release from the Bend Police Department, police responded to a car accident involving a vehicle running into the BNSF tracks as a result of a medical condition Dec. 27. No injuries were reported in relation to the crash, but while investigating the accident police found the body of 24-year-old Robert Michael McKinney. While an investigation is still underway, police say that the incidents are unrelated and they don't suspect foul play.
